The King of Calabar South and Paramount Ruler of the Efut Nation, His Royal Majesty, Muri Munene Effiong Mbukpa has called on the Cross River State Government to prosecute those it has apprehended in relation to the recent gang war and civil unrest in the area.

Muri Munene who made the appeal recently on an exclusive interview with CrossRiverWatch TV said, “Honestly I feel happy and delighted with the Police and State Government on trying to curb these menace of cultism and kidnapping around the local government; Calabar South. Government should do its utmost best to make sure that menace is curbed”.

About issues of not prosecuting those behind the unrest in Calabar South over the years, the King said: “Well you see that’s one of the lacuna causing a lot of wahala in Calabar South where you arrest and the next minute the same persons are set out on bail and they come back and perpetuate the same crime, it doesn’t encourage the community to work harder because they know that the same persons will come back and continue from where they stopped”.

Adding that, “And let me use this opportunity to plead that the court, the government should prosecute those they are supposed to prosecute and let the court jail or discharge the persons, but I want to believe that the correct thing to do is to charge them to court and let them go and prove their innocence there”.

“We are tired of these bad names given to Calabar South, we want to correct it and that is why we cooperated to the fullest with the police and other security agencies and tried to curb the menace and we shall continue to do that”.

Concluding, he said: “My advice to the government and police is that please do not let these people off guard and I know that within the police itself there are secret cult members who are also informants to these groups, so to in politics, there are secret cult members who also give information and when you get them arrested them ogas’ at the top will come and release them on bail, so too to the police the ogas’ that are secret cult members will cover their members at the lower level and this secret cult thing is something that is biting so hard in to the fibers of democracy and Nigeria at large”.
